About Air Con Radiators

The car's air conditioning system conditions the air, which means whilst cooling the air in the car down, it also helps to ensure there isn't too much moisture in the car, so it stops the air getting too humid.  The car's air conditioning unit also cleans the air in the car by filtering the dust and other particles from the air inside the car.

The Mercedes-Benz aircon rads, also referred to as a Mercedes-Benz aircon condenser or Mercedes-Benz aircon radiator, is fixed in front of the engine's radiator, looking a lot like a smaller version of the radiator.

Hot gas or vapour is pumped from the Mercedes-Benz aircon compressor into the Mercedes-Benz aircon rads where it is cooled and turned back into a really cold liquid which is pumped into the aircon evaporator and flows into the car as cold air. This whole process is then repeated over and again.

Situated in front of the engine's radiator, the Mercedes-Benz aircon rads are an easy target for corrosion. A common reason for loss of refrigerant gas in your air conditioning system is the failure of the air conditioning radiator. If there is insufficient cold air, it could be clogged aircon rads. This may mean you need to get a new/replacement part and should seek advice from your mechanic.

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
  • Unlike most cars, Mercedes vehicles are not spray painted. Instead, they are completely submerged in anti-corrosion coating and primer. That means the protective liquid can get into every part of the car.
  • If you thought self-driving cars were all about Tesla, then it might surprise you to know that Mercedes Benz made an autonomously driving vehicle as early as 1995. It didn't gain popularity, but it became the foundation of the modern driving technology found in every Mercedes Benz.
  • Karl Benz obviously gave his name to the company, but the Mercedes part of the name comes from the daughter of his customer and friend, Emil Jellinek. Her name was (obviously) Mercedes, and it's still surprising that her name remains so attached to the iconic car brand.
  • That new car smell is always a delight, but a Mercedes owner gets to choose that smell. Perfume specialist Marc vom Ende created four different car smells for Mercedes Benz, called Sports Mood, Freeside Mood, Downtown Mood, and Nightlife Mood. They all smell a bit leathery.
